Aston Villa completes deal for Luna

Aston Villa have completed the signing of defender Antonio Luna, the club confirmed on Thursday.

Luna, 22, joins the Villans on a three-year deal from La Liga side Sevilla for an undisclosed transfer fee.

Luna appeared in four matches for Sevilla before being loaned out to Real Mallorca, but he will now have a chance to play in England's top flight.

"I've always believed I could play in the Premier League and to have this opportunity with a club as historic and huge as Aston Villa and with a manager who is building a squad of young players with great prospects is tremendously exciting for me," Luna told the club's official website.

"This is perfect for me," Luna continued. "I am keen to make progress myself and I want to be a part of this."

Luna has also represented Spain at several age groups, including five appearances for the Under-20 side.
